Roman Harper fined $15K for hit on Panthers WR Steve Smith

Saints safety Roman Harper has been fined $15,000 for the late hit he delivered on Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith in Week five.

Harper hit the Cats top target in the end zone following his first quarter touchdown in the Saints’ 30-27 victory last Sunday.

Plenty of pushing and shoving ensued between the NFC South foes, with a heated clash between Smith and Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins following the Harper hit.

Here’s what Harper had to say about the Smith altercation:

“I just was like, ‘You’re not going to walk and showboat in our end zone like that,’” Harper said. “I just lost it, and maybe I shouldn’t have hit him but I did. I’m not going to apologize for what I did.”
